Secondhand Lions

They come from a different time.

The ornery ol’ cusses played here by Robert Duvall and Michael Caine hail from an era where men were two-fisted titans, able to woo ladies, duel sheiks, and live life large.

Now, they’re camped out on a farm in Texas, enjoying their retirement, shotguns at the ready to plug any salesmen who come looking for their rumored fortune.

Into this world wanders 14-year-old Walter, their kin by blood but not deed.

He’s trying to find his way, saddled with an irresponsible mom, and desperately in need of role models.

We have a bingo.
